In a Prom of choral classics the Choir of King's College, Cambridge, follows intricate sacred works by Mozart and Haydn with the radiant serenity of Fauré, whose Requiem radiates stillness and spirituality.
The King's choristers are joined by leading vocal soloists as well as the period instruments of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment.

INTERVAL
The choir of King's College, Cambridge, is one of the most renowned university choirs in the world, and its chapel home is a marvel of architectural and acoustical beauty. The choir has also produced many distinguished musicians, and in this feature Sara Mohr-Pietsch visits the chapel with two of them - baritone Stephen Varcoe and organist Thomas Trotter - to discuss the experience of performing with the choir, and how it prepared them for a career in music. She also chats to some of the choir's current choral scholars and choristers about what life is like in the choir today, and what the future might hold.
